Storyline

Avid movie-watcher and video store clerk Bazil has had his life all but ruined by weapons of war. His father was killed by a landmine in Morocco and one fateful night a stray bullet from a nearby shootout embeds itself in his skull, leaving him on the verge of instantaneous death. Losing his job and his home, Bazil wanders the streets until he meets Slammer, a pardoned convict who introduces him to a band of eccentric junkyard dealers including Calculator, a math expert and statistician, Buster, a record-holder in human cannonball feats, Tiny Pete, an artistic craftsman of automatons, and Elastic Girl, a sassy contortionist. When chance reveals to Bazil the two weapons manufacturers responsible for building the instruments of his destruction, he constructs a complex scheme for revenge that his newfound family is all too happy to help set in motion. Written by The Massie Twins

Goofs

When the three goons roll their ammunition down a table to decide who will execute De Fenouillet, the rounds roll in a straight line. Since the three of them use 357 magnum revolvers, the rounds have a rim which would make them roll in an arc of a circle. See more »

Imaginative visually but I don't care about the characters
22 April 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Bazil as a child loses his father to a landmine in Morocco. 30 years later, Bazil is a video store clerk and filmophile. He gets hit with a stray bullet and hospitalized. He loses his job to hot girl Lola and is now homeless. He befriends ex-con Slammer and his band of eccentric junk dealers. When Bazil finds the weapons manufacturers that caused his misery, the oddball family get together to take revenge.

I just don't find Bazil that appealing or compelling. Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet creates another fanciful slice of France like Amélie. But Dany Boon is no Audrey Tautou. This is a visually inventive movie, but the characters aren't very interesting. They feel like a random selection of people from all the different colors and races selected by an advertising company. And I don't care about any of them.
